SPC Faculty Member Opens Art Exhibit Locally

An internationally recognized artist who is also a St. Philip's College fine arts faculty member is noted in a May 12 Rivard Report article that also promotes the faculty member's upcoming art exhibition in San Antonio. The faculty member is Esteban Delgado, and all are welcome to attend the free opening reception of his exhibition Esteban Delgado | Plural Forms on May 19 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Russell Hill Rogers Gallery II of the Santikos Building at Southwest School of Art at 300 Augusta Ave.

Delgado has been giving back as a faculty member at the college. A world-class art school that operates within America's second-largest art museum has accepted the 2017 transfer application of his current student Hector Barbosa http://www.alamo.edu/spc/fineartsstudent/. Barbosa is bound this fall for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago http://www.saic.edu/, where Barbosa will attend as the recipient of a Merit Scholarship and the iconic alumni include Thomas Hart Benton, Robert Indiana, Edward Gorey, Halston, Grant Wood and Archibald Motley, Jr.

Plural Forms runs May 19-July 16, Delgado explained during the May 12 St. Philip's College graduation ceremony at Freeman Coliseum. “I hope people will experience the colors and shapes,” Delgado explains at the Southwest School of Art web site. “The combinations of colors, the color filled paintings, all help create reactions I’m looking for in the viewer.”

"It's only a week away, and I'd love to greet guests and my students during the reception, it would be my pleasure," Delgado said during the graduation ceremony.

According to the May 10 report, Southwest School of Art to Feature Artists from Mexico, San Antonio, the event that kicks off the summer exhibition season at Southwest School of Art is a double bill of internationally recognized artists with artist Victor Pérez-Rul and Esteban Delgado. “The two exhibitions are abstracting the idea of landscapes,” said Mary Mikel Stump, former curator at the Southwest School of the Art. Stump curated the works of these two artists a year ago and now works at Washington State History Museum. “Esteban references Southwest landscape imagery as his source and pares that down to the essential for geometric shapes and color found within that landscape,” Stump said. “In Victor’s work, we become part of the composition and are literally inside the work of art, which makes us think about our relationship to our environments and what activates them.” A preview of the exhibition will be available for attendees of Savor the Arts, the annual fundraiser to benefit the school’s Young Artists Programs on May 18 from 7–11 p.m. in the Santikos Building. That paid event features food and beverage from many San Antonio restaurants as well as music.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION Esteban Delgado | Plural Forms (Courtesy Southwest School of Art): Delgado, who was raised in Bishop, Texas currently lives and works in San Antonio where he is a faculty member at St. Philip’s College. His work explores relationships between space and light by collaging geometric shapes into abstract or disrupted spaces, highlighting the artist’s interest and exploitation of the tensions between various colors and forms inspired by the landscapes of South Texas. He uses multiple shapes in several large-scale paintings and a site-specific wall installation that includes the surrounding floor. Large, flat fields of color create imagined space while obscuring actual space and help create an architectural reference to what is actually two-dimensional…. Delgado also is painting on vinyl for part of his installation, to evoke a three dimensionality to his work. Delgado holds a BFA from Texas A&M University at Kingsville and an MFA from The University of Texas at San Antonio. He has received numerous awards that include selection for the 2011 Texas Biennial and a project grant in 2013 from the Idea Fund. His work has been exhibited throughout Texas as well as Mexico, Canada, and Austria.
